The Big Banana
Coffs Harbour's and indeed Australia's most famous "Big" icon would have to be The Big Banana.
This giant structure located just north of Coffs Harbour on the Pacific Highway, 565 kilometres north of Sydney and 450 kilometres south of Brisbane is probably the most well known "Big Thing" in Australia.
Over the last 40 years the Big Banana has grown into one of the Coffs Coasts most recognised tourist attractions with fun rides, educational tours and shows, recreational facilities and a fantastic selection of food and gift products.
